  • That does seem kind of young to be having that problem already but with all the hormones and crap they put in our food nowadays, it doesn't surprise me. I agree with sta and would check with his doctor, and maybe deodorant would help? I'm sure sure on if its safe for children or not though so you might want to ask that as well.

  • It might be his diet or a imbalance in his system. Was he on a lot of antibiotics when he was younger? You may need to start some probiotics to balance out his system. Get to the root of the problem not the surface.

  • Check with the pediatrician or use a natural or organic deodorant. Like another poster said, it could be his diet too. Most things we eat are organic. Just creeps me out to put all that crap in our bodies from conventional food.

  • My son has the same problem. He is 9 now but I noticed he was starting to smell around 8. I took him to his Dr. who checked him for early puberty but it wasn't that. He just told us to make sure he showers regularly and wears deodorant.
